Alright so rough timeline puts GSM in 2005-ish, when they had at least one piece of music--I remember they used the original closing theme for the entire PYL episode (I thought I was hearing things until that episode showed up on YouTube later on). So sometime between then and 2009 (when I imagine they were making the 2010 game), they lost the original music. Or else they lost rights to use it, one.

/I know it's a bit off-topic, but I have a hard time fathoming how either eventuality could happen.

The story with the music as I've come to believe is that the one of the reels of PYL music was damaged beyond repair some time ago, but I've also read from Terry @ TVPMM that the Carruthers family does have a reel of their own, but has declined to release it. The music that was used on Game Show Marathon was likely from the tape that a trader received from Score that has the opening, closing, and alt. opening theme. Not sure if anyone has reached out to Michel Camilo, the composer of the theme.

This just in: actor Joel McHale has been confirmed as host of Card Sharks.

-----------------
April 8, 2019
 
ABC STACKS THE DECK WITH JOEL MCHALE AS HOST OF
‘CARD SHARKS,’ PREMIERING THIS SUMMER ON ABC
 
ABC Entertainment and Fremantle announced today that actor and comedian Joel McHale is set to host “Card Sharks,” the suspenseful game where a fortune can be won on the turn of a single playing card! The show is slated to air this summer on The ABC Television Network.
 
“I’m very excited to be hosting ‘Card Sharks,’” said Joel McHale. “Game winners can win tens of thousands of dollars and in an updated twist – losers will be fed to a pen of adult Tiger Sharks.”
 
The road to glory and riches begins with two players facing off in a head-to-head elimination race where the winning player claims a $10,000 cash prize and a chance to turn that amount into a life-changing payday. The anticipation builds as the winning contestant risks their prize on predicting seven final cards. The player leaves the game with whatever amount of money they have in their bank after their prediction, and results are revealed on the flip of their seventh and final card.
 
Joel McHale was most recently seen in “The Happy Time Murders,” as well as Netflix’s “A Futile and Stupid Gesture,” opposite Will Forte. McHale also recently hosted “The Joel McHale Show with Joel McHale” on Netflix, a half-hour topical series that took a sharp, absurdist look at pop culture and news from across the globe. In 2015, McHale wrapped the 12th and final season of E! Network’s “The Soup,” in which he satirized pop culture and current events. He is best known for his starring role on the hit comedy series “Community.” Other starring feature roles include the Jerry Bruckheimer-produced, supernatural thriller “Deliver Us from Evil”; the Warner Bros’ romantic comedy “Blended,” alongside Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore; Seth MacFarlane’s comedy smash “Ted”; Steven Soderbergh’s “The Informant”; as well as “What’s Your Number?,” starring Chris Evans and Anna Faris. In 2014, McHale hosted the annual White House Correspondents’ Association dinner in Washington D.C. He also hosted “The 2015 ESPYS” on ABC. In the fall of 2016, McHale released his first book through Putnam Penguin, “Thanks for the Money: How to Use My Life Story to Become the Best Joel McHale You Can Be,” which is part memoir, part self-help guide. McHale is repped by UTA and Ziffren Brittenham LLP.
 
“Card Sharks” is produced by Fremantle. Scott St. John is showrunner and executive producer, and Jack Martin and Jennifer Mullin are also executive producers.

Just as long as the sharks don't have lasers attached to their heads--or get swapped out for ill-tempered mutated sea bass in the case of budget cuts.

Per the press release, Money Cards should be standard. I'm guessing they got the 7 from the number of cards initially dealt on the board. Technically speaking, under both classic versions, the Money Cards round goes through anywhere from 8-11 cards. But holy crap, does the $10,000 maingame winnings go into the Money Cards? If then, that's a possible six figure payout. A couple of years ago I made a rough sketch of what I think the Money Cards should look like today, based on the Eubanks/Rafferty rules. $1000 first line/+$2000 second line/Big Bet, max payout is $160,000.

Now the maingame format is a little bit more vague. All the release says is that it is a "head-to-head elimination race." I hope that they don't screw that up like they did in the '01 series. And please, no gimmicky stuff (e.g. "clip chips" or whatever that crap was) either.

Choice of host continues the recent trend of picking comedians to host game shows. Hopefully, McHale will be a fine host.
Only recently did it finally click that my hazy memory of a post-Showcase Big Wheel spin came from an MDS.

I like Joel McHale, but his comedy style tends to be on the cynical, snarky side--not really what makes a good game show host (unless the show in question is The Weakest Link). Hopefully he'll be able to tone it down a bit and sincerely root for the contestants.

As for PYL, although it probably won't happen, I'd really like to see Ben Bailey as host.

Six figures? Unless I did my math wrong, you could win $1.28 million if you bet it all on the last card — doubling $10,000 seven times

You wouldn't get the $10,000 to bet with from the first card because you need to split it between the first and second line.

Well if you think about it, the main game on the original show was a head-to-head race through the cards and one player got eliminated.  So hopefully it's just weird wording from the press release and not another retooling of the format.

^If the contestants' last names aren't mentioned on the show, Steve Beverly would not be happy about that at all.
